"Rich Man, Poor Man -- Who's the Beggar Man or Thief?" (Part 5 - The conclusion)

The STORY of the RICH and the POOR--A Child's Course in Economics! -- Or, What's the Matter with the Oil and Money?

By David Brandt Berg, November 11, 1974
A poor man begging and the rich man is digging in the poor man's pocket for money to give him a donation! (Continued from part 4)

THIS IS THE LOGIC OF THE RICH, THAT THEY ARE ALWAYS BEING ROBBED BY THE POOR by wages or prices of the poor's services and goods while it is really the rich who have constantly been robbing the poor of their fair share, as small as it may be!

AFTER ALL, MR. RICHMAN FEELS HE DESERVES AND NEEDS IT ALL FOR HIMSELF, so why should this little upstart of a Mr. Poorman start demanding proper pay for his goods and services! Isn't Mr. Richman the one who is using them and turning them into pleasant products for the other rich to enjoy as well?

SO WHY SHOULD MR. POORMAN SUDDENLY START DEMANDING THINGS HE'S NEVER EVEN HAD BEFORE and wealth he's not accustomed to or a share of the benefits with which he has not formerly been blessed? After all, he's always been poor so why shouldn't he stay poor and go away and leave his oil alone so Mr. Richman can have it all and stay rich in the riches to which he has been so well accustomed?

Mr. Richman takes Mr. Poorman's oil!

WHAT RIGHT HAS MR. POORMAN TO START DEMANDING ENOUGH FOR HIS OIL to be even repaid a little of what the rich have robbed him in the past as well as its present values? But Mr. Richman says that this means we'll have to raise all our prices in order to stay rich, and the other poor people and labourers may not like this and may demand higher wages which we may have to pay them to keep them alive so they can remain our slaves.

THIS WILL ONLY SPEED UP THIS TERRIBLE INFLATIONARY MERRY-GO-ROUND OF HIGHER PRICES AND WAGES until everybody gets thrown off balance and goes flying through the air in one great crash!

BUT REALLY, MR. POORMAN COULDN'T CARE LESS ABOUT THE PLIGHT MR. RICHMAN HAS BROUGHT UPON HIMSELF by robbing Mr. Poorman for so long, so that Mr. Richman made the whole world think he could rob Mr. Poorman forever while the rich all enjoyed luxuriating in Mr. Poorman's oil which they were buying for almost nothing while making vast fat rich profits from it for their own pleasure and throwing away the rest which the poor of the world would have been happy to have if they could!

Inflation Merry-Go-Round

SO THE POOR NEIGHBOURS OF MR. POORMAN ARE GETTING TOGETHER, PLUS SOME POWERFUL FRIENDS OF THE POOR AND ENEMIES OF THE RICH, AND SAYING, "WE THINK YOU'RE RIGHT, MR. POORMAN, and you have a right to charge whatever you think your oil is worth and share its benefits and even get back some of your losses for being cheated so long by the rich! So we'll stand with you, and we just dare the rich to pounce on the poor! We'll help you fight back, and if the rich try any funny stuff, they're going to be the losers this time and not us poor!

"IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE AND THIS TIME THE CHANGE IS GOING TO BE IN OUR FAVOUR and there's going to be a fair share of the world's wealth instead of nearly all of it going into the pockets of the rich and the semi-rich!

"IF NOT, WE'LL HAVE TO DESTROY THE RICH and take over the whole neighbourhood of the world ourselves for the benefit of the poor to save the earth from destruction by the rich!"

God about the avenge the poor!

LISTEN, MY CHILDREN, AND YOU SHALL HEAR OF THE WORLD'S LAST RIDE OF THE RICH TO THE REAR! But there will be no escape for them as there'll be no place to go and nowhere to hide, as they can't stop the world and get off as they'll wish they could!

GOD IS ABOUT TO JUDGE THE RICH BY THE POOR, as He so often has throughout history, and the rich are about to reap the cruelties and poverties they themselves have sown amongst the poor, while the meek and the poor shall inherit the earth!

IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT I MEAN, JUST TAKE A LOOK AT A WORLD MAP OR GLOBE AND LISTEN TO THE CRIES OF THE POOR THROUGHOUT THE EARTH to be soon answered by the thunderous judgments of God Himself upon the rich nations of the world!

ONE LEADING ARAB DIPLOMAT COMMENTED FIRMLY, "WAR IS INEVITABLE AND IMMINENT!" MEANWHILE, THE U.S. IS SCREAMING ITS HEAD OFF THAT THE ARABS ARE ALL TO BLAME FOR ALL THE WORLD'S WOES!

America calling the Arabs crazy

IF YOU'LL JUST VIEW THE MAP OF SOUTHERN ASIA AND NORTHERN AFRICA YOU'LL SEE HOW VAST AND HOW LONG AND STRONG IS THIS COMBINED ARAB-ISLAMIC WALL between Eastern oil and Western greed!--And most of the rest of the poor world will sympathise and back these kings of the East as they lead the poor to power while Western paper empires burn out in overheated friction without Arab oil!

WHEN IT'S ALL OVER AND THE THICK BLACK SMOKE OF THE BURNING OIL PROBLEM HAS BEEN BLOWN AWAY ..... MR. POORMAN WILL STILL BE WITH US TO HELP PICK UP THE PIECES AND BUILD A NEW WORLD wherein dwelleth peace, happiness and plenty for all, as it was in the Beginning!

Mr. Poorman rebuilding the world

SO THAT, MY CHILDREN, IS THE HAPPY ENDING OF THE STORY OF "RICHMAN, POORMAN"!--Now do you know who's the Beggarman or Thief?--Who'd you rather be?--Mr. Richman or Mr. Poorman?--I thought so!--I would too! For Jesus said, "The meek (Poorman) shall inherit the Earth" and live happily ever after!--Will you?--Amen! (The End!)
